Digital photography and its post processing tools offer so many creative possibilities for making a final presentation of our RAW files. Here I demonstrate the same photo presented 3 different ways mostly using Adobe Lightroom / Camera Raw and a little bit of Photoshop.
South Africa has two species of rhino: the White Rhino which is the largest population and most commonly seen and the Black Rhino which is not as numerous and harder to spot. The two species are distinct and here are a few of the differences most important to photographers.
Since we host safaris in both April/May and September/October we get asked frequently which is the best choice for a photo and wildlife safari . The short answer is that they are both great times to visit South Africa and see wildlife. Given this, there are differences which I will point out.
I compiled links to all of my informative posts about choosing a safari, packing, and getting ready for a safari in South Africa
While on safari I like to keep my equipment streamlined and light. Over many years photographing in South Africa, my Canon 70 – 200mm f2.8 has taken the bulk of my wildlife images.
The lions, cheetahs and leopards – the big cats – get a great deal of attention during safaris. Quietly hunting and living in the bush are smaller species of cats. These less celebrated cats are very interesting to see and watch and have loads of charisma.
2014 has been an exciting year for me full of travel and photography. Being out among nature I see the impact that humans have on wildlife. As I review the year in photos in this blog, I have decided to highlight some of the conservation issues I experience out in the field with my camera.
Taking a Good Photo to the Next Level using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop using curves and color correction to make the image even better.
I had a wonderful group of guests this year and together we had loads of fun and adventure. I want to thank them for making this a very memorable safari season and I hope to travel with them again and keep in touch. A special memory for me is safari guests who returned this year and said it was even better than last time!
Giraffes were abundant on my latest safari. My guests had loads of fun photographing our resident herd and those in Kruger.
